Pakistan News: Dr Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, head of the Mumbai-based Dawoodi Bohra sect of Islam, will be honored with Pakistan’s highest civilian award ‘Nishan-e-Pakistan’. He will be the fourth Indian to receive Pakistan’s highest civilian honour. According to a statement by Pakistan President Arif Alvi, the award has been announced in recognition of the services of Dr Saifuddin.

Alvi announced the award on Wednesday. However, the date of the awards ceremony has not been announced. ‘Nishan-e-Pakistan’ or ‘Grand Cross of the Order of Pakistan’ is the highest civilian decoration awarded for services of the highest order in the national interest of Pakistan. It is equivalent to the highest military gallantry award ‘Nishan-e-Haider’.

President Alvi announced the award

President Alvi announced the award under Article 259 (2) of the Constitution and Honors Act 1975. Normally every year the award is announced on Pakistan’s Independence Day on 14 August and awarded on Pakistan’s National Day on 23 March the following year, but in special cases these dates are not followed and the award can be given at any time. Delivery can be arranged.

These Indians have already received the respect of Pakistan

Followers of the Dawoodi Bohra community live in more than 40 countries and they also have a large number in Pakistan. People of the community do development work for the upliftment of the weaker sections in these countries. The first Indian to be honored with ‘Nishan-e-Pakistan’ was Morarji Desai. He was given this honor in 1990. In 1998, actor Dilip Kumar was awarded ‘Nishan-e-Imtiaz’, Pakistan’s highest award given in the field of art and culture. In the year 2020, Kashmiri separatist leader Ali Geelani was awarded ‘Nishan-e-Pakistan’.
